American nuns build church with bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) has already enabled the strangest, most beautiful and grandiose projects, and people’s dreams are getting bigger every year. For example, the government of El Salvador initially wanted to build an animal hospital with the money in its BTC fund, but now it is already an entire city. American nuns built a church with it.

Church invests in bitcoin

That writes Bitcoin Magazine, who spoke to nuns of the order of Benedictines or Mary, Queen of Apostles. This order has a monastery in Kansas City, Missouri. They want to protect their Catholic traditions in a time of ‘cultural rot’, according to the crypto newspaper. What is special is that they also think that there is ‘financial rot’. That is why they use bitcoin to protect themselves against it.

The nuns were inspired by Father Bartulica, who already pointed Bitcoin Magazine to Saifedean Ammous’s book ‘The Bitcoin Standard’. Bartulica introduced the nuns to BTC, even teaching them about hardware wallets and how to use the network. In fact, his mission is to convert other Catholic churches in the area to a bitcoin standard as well.

New church funded with BTC donations

The idea started when the monastery got some large donations in bitcoins in 2017. There were already plans for a church, but thanks to the donations it was possible to do this in a financially much more responsible way, because the monastery no longer has a loan. Because it is a religious organization, it did not have to pay the US capital gains tax on the bitcoins it sold.

One of these churches is already there. Bitcoin Magazine expected a dull, modern building, like many churches nowadays. Instead, it has become a beautiful piece of architecture, with hand-painted murals, Italian marble, high ceilings and stained glass windows. And everything is financed with generous donations.
